Heat-Traction™ Anti-Slip Covers
Skip the shoveling this winter and melt ice and snow with Safeguard Heat-Traction™ heated step and walkway covers.
An electrically powered pad under the anti-slip cover emits heat to prevent snow and ice from building up, regardless of temperature.
Even without the heated option, the covers feature a rugged, non-slip surface that grips footwear and prevents slips and falls. With a variety of grits, colors, logos, and messaging, your safety upgrade works year-round. Our Heat-Traction™ covers:
- Enhance safety, reduce liability exposure, and lower operating costs
- Are effective, fast-acting, and add long-lasting traction and visibility
- Have a five-year warranty (heating elements have a two-year warranty)
- Eliminate the need for shoveling and costly snow melting chemicals

SAFEGUARD Color Options
Standard and Safety Colors
Use for a variety of industrial and safety applications. Color and markings can be used to attract attention, designate caution, and communicate safety information.
These colors can be combined in two tone configurations to create extra visual safety effects.
Our Premium color palette provides architects, facilities managers, and home owners with additional contemporary color choices for safety applications. These designer colors fit the aesthetic requirements for anti-slip protection at schools, commercial offices, institutional buildings, hotels and personal residences.
These colors complement your decor while providing top-notch safety.
In darkness or a power outage, HiGlo-Traction Photoluminescent colors highlight the way.
HiGlo-Traction colors glow in the dark to provide extra visibility at night or during a power outage.
Two-Tone Color Configurations Add Visibility
For added safety, two-tone step covers call attention to the leading edge of the step. A contrast between the step edge and the back of the tread below provides good definition and clear visibility for added awareness.
Use a contrasting color to highlight the edge of a step or walkway.
Warning messages, text, and logo graphics can be embedded into Safeguard® Step Covers to last for the life of the product. We can even match your color.
Combined with a Photoluminescent “Glow-in-the-Dark” background, the message is visible after dark and during power outages to provide safe egress/ingress during emergency evacuations.
How to Place an Order
Measure steps and walkways to be covered. We recommend leaving a small uncovered space at the edges in case of irregularities. If connecting multiple units, limit to 13 amps per power unit.
How to Install
Follow instructions for step cover installation and walkway cover installation using mechanical fasteners. Insert the heating element between the solid substrate (concrete, wood, etc.) and the Hi-Traction® cover.
Placement of grommet holes on heaters can vary. Align these holes with each cover as holes are drilled. Pre-drilled holes will be aligned with the grommet holes in the heater; match each cover to its corresponding heater.
Align grommet holes on heater with holes on cover.
